The second paragraph was edited to the above from this:
The National Education Association (NEA) and other organizations are hosting a series of grass-roots "house parties" today on education. Our teachers' union, Education Minnesota, has been promoting these meetings. While discussions of
education can help educate the public on complex issues, they can do so only if
they provide accurate, unbiased information.
Consider the activities of just two of the partnering organizations for this event. One is the liberal activist group Moveon.org, funded by billionaire George Soros, who has given more than $16 million to groups whose agenda is to defeat President Bush. And the NEA has called for union members to mobilize to defeat Bush.
The claim that today's house parties are designed to be "nonpartisan, issue-based events" rings hollow.
Let�s consider the activities of just two of the partnering organizations for this event. One is the liberal activist group Moveon.org, funded by billionaire George Soros, who has given over $16 million to groups whose agenda is to defeat President Bush. It was Moveon.org that posted two sample political ads on its web site that compared President Bush to Hitler, an action that was condemned by the president of the American Jewish Congress who called the ads �inexcusable� and �morally outrageous.� And at its July conference, the NEA called for union members to mobilize to defeat George Bush and provided Michael Moore�s anti-Bush film �Fahrenheit 9/11� as a treat for conventioneers.
The links are mine to show the validity of her statement. Yecke reports that she had already edited her article for length. The removal of the italicized pieces makes the impact of the following sentence (in para. 3) much weaker.
'Round these parts, Cheri, we call this Boydulent.
